Is For all appearances of newness or In
experience the Gu mlmen might as well
hae been in camp for a month It proved
no trouble at all for the men who came
latel from desks and stores to slip Into
the grooves of discipline and routine duty
No Incident of pirlicular importance
marked the second das of the sojourn of
the citizen soldier of the National Capi
tal at Camp Ordwa
Steud drill two hours of It morning
and afternoon In extended order was the
feature of the routine The men are show
ing plcntj of mettle and spirit Officers
are highl pleased at the outlook and
reiterate predictions tint the present en
campment will prove the most successful
In the history of the Guard
About noon todiy tho rumble of
artillerj came from the Leesburg Pike
A platoon from the Fourth Field Battery
Artillerv Corps which left Wahlngton
Barracks jcterda morning arrived un
der command of Lieut Fox Connor and
Lieut C C Carter In a few minutes
the artillerj men were under canas on

The detachment bivouacked last night
on the road having left Washington be
fore the Guard did The received the
rain which Camp Ordwaj and the militia
men were spared An interesting feature
of the march of the artiiler was the fact
that they subsisted on the new army
emergenc ration In a tin hot about six
Inches long Is carried enough pure choco
late salt and pepper and a fine powdered
grainy substance similar In appearance
to cornrieal but much more nutrlclous
to sustain a soldier during an entire das
march Both officers were much gratified
at the effect of the trial of the ration
which was adopted b the arm three
months ago
Two platoons will probably join tho
brigade In the lild exercises next week
and will remain until camp Is broKen
There has et developed no necessity
for a provost guard In I cesburg Last
night the soldiers who visited the town
acted In an orderly manner although
some of tha citizens did not think so
Discipline appears to be better this ear
than ever before The decision not to
establish a provost guard was taken with
the feeling that the Guardtmen would
-have the reputation of the District mili
tia too much at heart to create disorder
Not man Leesburg people have visited
the camp as et It is expected that they
will In a few das after things nre a
trifle more settld Among other dis
tinguished visitors expected during the
comng week are Secreiar Root and As

Inspect the Guard Secretary
Root visited the Gu ird at Galthersburg
last year and expressed a high opinion of
thi efficiency of the organization

A story of a robbery in Baltimore sev
eral das ngn became known here by a
lookout received last night by the police
for Bertha Boehn a German woman
about middle age who is supposed to have
passed through this city en route for the
South late Thursday night It is said
the woman robbed Gustav Sehneidteker
an aged man of JCflO In gold while stop
ping in Baltimore The woman is accom
panied by a child supposed to bo her
own
It is learned here that the woman and
also the man stopped for a time at Mil
lers at 10 Belair Street Baltimore It
was there the robber Is said to have
taken place and the woman Immediate ly
took flight in this direction Besides her
child she carried with her a parrot In a
basket

Pared at the Pennslvanla depot leading
a child by the hand and carrlng bas
ket which contained a parrot Detective
How leu got a look Into the basket when
It was placed on the heater of the sta

Prolong the Incill Strike Con
trnetK Imperiled li the Trouble
Crisis Likely o lie lodnj
The situation In the contention between
the electrical wircmen and contractors Is
practleally unchanged The strike Is still
on Wl lie both sides have conceded the
main points un ler dispute minor ques
Under a blistering sun much of the mud i the union scale
tions now loom up Into the foreground
keeping still remote the probabllit of a
final agreement
The demands of the union men for an
eight hour day to go into effect October 1
doube pa for all over time and a wage
of 3 CO per day have been conceded
These were the principal points of the
contention of the men
But other demands of the workmen
have not et received the sanction of the
contractors
The wiremen want to go to work at 730
oclock In the morning and with a half
hour for luncheon quit at 4 oclock in the
afternoon The contractors desire the
men to go to work at 8 oclock quitting
at 4 30 p m The vlremen demand that
the proposed contract extend over the
city of Washington and contiguous ter
rltor within a radius of tw cut -live
miles The contractors would confine the
Jurisdiction of the contract to the limits
of the District of Columbia This would
permit them to take work at nearby
Mainland towns and pay wages below
The Ircmens Union will be willing to
concede the first demand for five d is of
each week provided the contractors will
consent to adopt for Saturdays the time
of going to work and quitting as asked
by the men In the matter of Territorial
Jurisdiction the union is at present firm
In Its refusal to make any concession
The opinion prevails among the wiremen
that C E Graham Secretary of the Elec
trical Contractors Association and man
ager of the National Electric Company
is the stumbling block In the way of a
prompt settlement of the dispute To
Grahams neglect in advising his confreres
of the position taken by the wirerqen is
ascribed by them the existence of the
present strike
A preliminary meeting of the Executive
Committee of the local union of the In
ternational Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers No 2G and of the Electrical
Contractors Association was held es
terday morning at Costellos Hall The
partial understanding stated above was
then reached Concessions were made on
both sides leav Ing only the matter of ter
ritorial Jurisdiction and the hours of be
ginning and leaving work to be agreed
upon The meeting concluded with these
questions still undecided the contractors
committee claiming the privilege to con
fer and consider the questions with the
other contractors At a meeting of the
union which followed the conference the
position of the Executive Committee was
presented and approved
There are some large contracts now un
der way and an immediate settlement Is
desired by both sides The electric line
men who have an independent union
from the wircmen have assured their
fellow -laborers of their smpath and It
is belleveel that should the situation as
sume a graver aspect or seem likely to
be protracted the linemen would declare
a mpathetlc strike Today will proba
bly witness the climax in the difficulties
THE RECORD OF PAItDONS
Two Administrations Compared
In
CnsefTof Uxecntlve Clemenej
James S Easb -Smith Pardon Attorney
of the Department of Justice has pre
pared an Interesting report for the use
of the Attorney General upon the appli
cation for pardon of persons who have
been convicted of violations of the na
tional banking laws The Attorney Gen
eral presented the information therein
contained to the President at Canton
Ohio where Jlr Knox was recent
called Into conferercc by Mr McKinley
Mr Easb -Smith compares the second
Administration of Cleveland with the first
Administration of McKinley During Mr
Clevelands second Administration there
were filed forty four applications for par
don in banking cacs of which three were
denied and fort -one were favorabl act
ed upon Of these latter twenty one par
dons one restoration to citizenship eigh
teen commutations and one commutation
and restoration to citizenship were
granted
During Sir McKlnleys first administra
tion sixty cases were acted upon of which
twenty four were adversely reported and
denied and thirt six were favorably act
ed upon as follows I ardoned fifteen
restoration to citizenship five commuted
twelve commuted and restored to
hzenshlp four
Mr Easby Smlth sas Trom this It
will be seen that the proportion of the
total acts of clemency by President Mc
Kinley during his first administration was
neuriy 40 per cent less than the same
action by President Cleveland and the
proportion of absolute pardons granted
by President McKinley is just half the
proportion of absolute pardons granted
by President Cleveland
Bringing the report up to date the Par
don Attornev bhows that during his
two Administrations to date President
McKinley has acted upon sixty two appli
cations for pardons in bank cases The
total acts of clemency are forty three as
follows Pardoned twenty one pardoned
to restore to civil rights six commuted
and restored to civil rights four commut
ed twelve
Comparing these figures with those of
Clevelands two Administrations it was
seen that McKinley In four v ears and four
months has granted the same number of
pardons as Mr Cleveland In four ears
During this time McKinley h is denied
nirc leen applications while Cleveland In
four ears denied but three applications
Of the twenty pardons which McKlnlc
has granted live were allowed solely on
account of Ill health and two In order to
allow prisoners to be credited with the
time which they served in jail nwaltlng
trial
It is Interesting to note the proportion
of the sentences which have been served
by recipients of executive clemenc Tho
3C prisoners who received executive clem
ency in some form from McKinley during
his first Administration received sen
tences aggregating 203 years and G
months an average of about 5 years and
i montns each iney served before re
ceiving pardons or commutations 12
jears or an average of i years and C
montns eac h
Mr Hash -Smith notes that many of
the violations of the national b inking
laws are purely technical actually result
ing In no harm to the b ink or to any
perso l Many others are for the embez
zlement of trifling sums Tor instance
one petitioner eighty years old cashier
of a bank cashed his own check for J500
thus overdrawing his nceount to the ex
tent of ZW Tor this he was sentenced to
u term of fivo ears The b ink was re
imbursed and his sentence was com
muted to the payment of a line of y
Another case was that of a boy em
plocd is a bank clerk who transferred
about 200 from the account of a customer
to his own account He subsequi ntly re
imbursed the bank but was convicted
uiid sentenced to a term of live ears
After serving all but thrie months of his
si ntence he was pardoned
In many bank cases the applicants have
been pardoned or sentence commuted
upon the report of the trial judge that he
considered the minimum sentence too se
vere and would have imposetl a lighter
sentence hid It been in his power
Pardonb to restore civil rights are not
granted until after the prisoner 1ns serv
ed his full term and after being dis
charged for a considerable period pre

extend American trade In tjiat part of
the world
Colonel Stowe said also In nis elespatch
that he would not continue even as Con
sul General If permitted to receive the
additional compensation which the Amer

The resignation of Colonel Stowe from
the office of Consul General was received
recently at the State Department and his
telegram from Cape Town was in re
sponse to a cabled enquiry whether he
would accept the vice consul generalship
If provided with a good salary by the
firms which are Interested In his reten

Stowe said he could not live In Cape
Town on his salary of 30u0 a enr tho
lowest paid by nny Government to its
representative there and 7000 less than
the salary of the German Consul
Colonel Stowe has been Instrumental In
securing extensive sales of American ma
cliiner and metal gooils In South Africa
and manufacturers of these artlcls made
a proposition to the President and Sec
retary Hay to provide Colonel Stowe with
a liberal allowance out of their own pock

The President decided that this was
illegal a consul receiving more than
J1000 a ear not being permitted to have
any connection with business firms A
vice consul however is permitted to en

compensation from private business firms
and It was hoped that Colonel Stowe
